Utmost priority

 

A speech by Sarojini Naidu

Without peace,
without absolute,
determined, delivered
‘warlessness’, 
every inch of growth
and development
is meaningless –
an insipid showpiece
of plastic progress;
it takes us miles away
from what we truly merit, 
equanimity, and happiness.

So very true. If this last year has taught us anything at all it must be to treasure the simple things in life all the more like health, freedom and peace.
I would love to see that transpire before I leave this earth,.
